EDITORIAL POLICIES: The Journal has adopted the following editorial policies:

  • The Journal has emphasis on speedy publication. Most articles are published within 12 weeks of acceptance.
  • Preference is given to those articles from and dealing with issues relevant to developing countries.
  • Papers that are well-written and presented in the style of journal are eligible for a fast track review. We strongly encourage authors to obtain help with English writing if it is not their first language, and to pay careful attention to the "Instructions for Authors” which is found at the end of each issue and at the journal website.
  • Health-care professionals sometimes report lessons they have learned from their experience. Often these are important lessons and may be reported in working papers and monographs. While these may be valuable, they may also be biased, and the data may not be sufficiently robust to insure reliability. The Journal, therefore, prefers to consider those articles that describe well-designed studies and are substantiated by adequate data.
